In that case, why not add a third level of complexity?
Secretly, he wants to go home and be a farmer. And he sees this as weakness on his part. He's terrified that someone will find out. So he acts more and more brutal, to prove that he isn't weak.
There you go, the complexity you wanted, and back in line with how he's probably going to be used.
The interesting question then is who knows how he really feels? And what do they do about it?
